Can We Stop The Rich?

August 18, 2010

It dawned on me today that the Rich are soon going to own us all, and there is really nothing we can do to stop them.

They own the government, they own all the media, and they are breaking the rest of us in an attempt to have everything.

Look around you as you drive down the street. The stimulus packages — both of them — should have been used to save small business, but everywhere you look another small business is closed. There is a little strip mall in Alma I have started calling the Strip Mall of Broken Dreams, because there are only three businesses left in it and one of them is obviously on its last leg.

The Rich took all that stimulus money and they kept it. Why? Because they want to break the country.

Look, as all these small businesses go under, it forces ever more people into Wal-Mart and Target and all the other stores the nameless faceless corporations own.

Forget the salaries of corporate executives. They make $5 million bonuses, and they used the stimulus money from our taxes to give these executives those big bonuses because the companies cried that they couldn't lose their good people. Good people? You mean the people who apparently bankrupted your company so that you had to be bailed out? Yeah, those.

Most of us will not make a million dollars in our entire working life. NO ONE is worth that kind of money.

The Rich are squeezing the last bit of life out of the free enterprise system while at the same time telling us that the government is trying to ruin it by sticking them with all sorts of evil restrictions.

Our forefathers and the people who fought for the American Way did NOT do so simply to allow a handful of them could enslave the rest. And when I say handful, I’m talking about the 5% of the population of this country who now hold 65% of the wealth.

But that's exactly what's happening. People who have no money can't buy luxury items, and they don't have the luxury of shopping anywhere except where things are the cheapest. We are putting all these small business out of business because we can't afford to buy their products and services. Every time a small business goes under, the owners lose everything they have worked for and people lose jobs. Sure there may be only three or four employees, sometimes only two, but that's two more people without jobs.

If those two can find new jobs, it will be working for some corporation at a job they will like less and they’ll probably be working for a lot less money.

The Corporations took all that stimulus money NOT to help fix the economy, but so that the money didn't go into the hands of real small business owners. If the people who took that money had spent that money in this economy, the economy would be fixed. But they didn't spend it— they hoarded it as the Rich always hoard money.

The Rich aren't going to be happy till they own everything, until there is nothing left for anyone else.

Kiss your First Amendment rights goodbye. Oh you'll still be able to read news that isn't filtered by one of the huge corporate giants for the sole purpose of serving their own agenda, but you and 11 other people will have to be reading it off some "nut job’s" website. Well, that’s only they let us keep the web, because they're going to have to find some way to make us pay out the ass to use it and then, well, then they will control that too.

People aren't buying books. Status symbol books are still selling like hotcakes, but nothing else is. One by one all the small and independent presses are going under. When that happens, then the Corporations will own everything, and they'll publish only what they have decided you should read.

This is a government by the Rich, for the Rich, and that has never worked out well for the serfs like us.

Can we stop the Rich from enslaving us? Maybe, but we won't because the media knows just what buzz words to use to get stupid people to vote their way. They say big government is evil, but they won’t tell us that if "Big Government" doesn't step in to protect us, "Big Business" is about to eat us whole. We say don't want government to control healthcare, but right now it's controlled by Big Business and how's that working out for the working class? Not so good, huh? Without restrictions on Big Business, we can expect more of the same till they get exactly what they want.

Taking the restrictions off Big Business and giving them a huge tax cut is what caused this economic collapse in the first place. When you untie the hands of the spoiled little Rich boys, what you get is an oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that puts hundreds of thousands of people — many of whom were already struggling — out of work. Then idiot politicians scream that we're going to ruin the economy if we make BP pay to clean up the mess they made.

And you know what’s said? People believe that shit. They believe it because they voted for the guy, and they did that because he promised not to restrict their guns, kill unborn babies, or let homosexuals get married. They voted for him because he's all about “family values” and so what if he gets a hooker every once and awhile, he only does it because he was tempted by the Devil and he's repented now, really he has. Yeah, right.

Of course the problem is that whoever you vote for and whatever party, you are still voting for the Rich, and here's what I've found out about the Rich: They aren't going to vote for anything that takes money out of their own pocket.

So... maybe we are all just screwed.
